Sad Follow Up On GMO’s
I had to follow up on my writings on GMO’s. This is a sad commentary on how little influence the American people actually have in making their voices heard in our “for the people” government today.
You recall in my past newsletters that Vermont had voted “yes” to the mandatory labelling of any food that contained genetically modified organisms or had been genetically engineered. This bought about many of the large corporations like General Mills to start small, offering food labeled “NonGmo.”
Then the day, July 1st, this was to become effected in Vermont, once again the United State Government, i.e. the offices of the Senate, Congress and the President, our elected officials, ignored 90% of the wishes of the people and sided with multi-billion dollar corporations. This has also taken away “states rights” by overturning the wishes of the people. See Issue # 18 of my Lu’s Views News for the story.
If you want to know what representatives stand with the multi-billion dollar corporations instead of the the people, this is how they came out either for or against GMO labeling. I have taken the following from several news sites and other resources.
“Barack Obama (“Democrat”): Against mandatory GMO labeling, despite 90% of Americans being for it.
Ted Cruz (“Republican”): Against mandatory GMO labeling, despite 90% of Americans being for it.
Hillary Clinton (“Democrat”): Against mandatory GMO labeling, despite 90% of Americans being for it.
Bernie Sanders (“Democrat”): For GMO labeling, siding with the citizens instead of the corporations.
Donald Trump (“Republican”): For GMO labeling, siding with the citizens instead of the corporations.
Other gems of the Monsanto legislation is the fact that Monsanto is now EXEMPT from future lawsuits if GMO’s are later proven to cause ill health effects or even death in humans. (Why would they have need for asking for such a thing in legislation if GMO’s were really so harmless?)
When the Federal Government supports multibillion-dollar corporations over the wishes of 90% of their citizens and BANS States from simply TELLING THE TRUTH about the ingredients in food that their countrymen swallow, the United States has taken a sharp turn down the sewer. It is no wonder the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), at the lobbying requests of multibillion-dollar corporations, allows dozens of ingredients in foods that are not only banned in the rest of the world, would actually put you in prison for including in food, which in corrupt America, openly allows you to do so for profit.”
Sorry if I have offended anyone, but I am very much a patriot and I love my country, but that is why I have the freedom to write this, so far.

Also, I encourage you to pass my newsletter to others in your email account who may be interested in dealing with a toxic environment. Don’t forget about my books. They have lots of good information.
